5-13-2020 – Atlanta, GA – International project management consulting firm PMAlliance, known for helping Fortune 1000 companies improve the execution of their mission-critical initiatives, today announced its popular Duration-DrivenTM Fundamentals e-learning course, normally $499, will be available at no cost through May 31, 2020.

PMAlliance understands the hardships and struggles the current COVID-19 environment is causing for businesses. With more employees, contractors, and suppliers working remotely than ever before, companies are experiencing increased challenges delivering projects successfully.

In research conducted by PMAlliance, companies that provided team members with project management training were 2.5 times more likely to report projects being on time and/or within budget than organizations without adequate education. “PMAlliance wants to empower professionals with knowledge and skills that can help improve their chances of project success, and we hope that offering our Duration-Driven Fundamentals online learning course will help companies and project teams execute their projects more efficiently during this difficult time,” said PMAlliance president and founding partner Kevin Berry.


In addition, the online class can be a valuable way for displaced employees to enhance their skills, qualifying them for a wider variety of career opportunities and potential job openings as the economy enters the recovery phase.

• Clearly define a project’s scope and objectives
